This restaurant that is located in Hadda St. is worth trying. Hadda St. is outside the old city of Sana'a and given the current unstable situation in the country, it is probably better to have someone (local) take you there (by car).

if you like yemeni food , this is the place to be in Sanaa. try the Mikhbaza, backed fish it is simple, fresh and taste> price depends on the size between USD 7-12> I also tried their lamb and it is very delicious. Just try it. don't forget to ask for the forks because Yemenis eat using their hands>

Reading the Lonely Planet guide and listening to locals, I thought this restaurant was something special, but to be honest I was not impressed at all. It is famous for fish but after a lot of that in Socotra I wanted something else and I ordered the meat mix (don't remember exactly the name of the dish): when they brought... More
